Despite 3 awful calls, two of which were bad PI calls against Revis, the Patriots pulled it out.

Congrats to the Pats...I'm soooo glad they pulled that game out and won. Brady was great, coming back from two 14 pt deficits, it was an exciting game. Brady should be MVP after today's performance.

After that game, I think the Pats have the mental and physical toughness to beat anyone.

probably, but I think Seattle will have something to say about this. They look incredible. They are amazingly fast on defense and Russell Wilson looks somewhat like Oregon Ducks Marcus Mariota (the magic Play maker).

Yeah I don't see the Broncos or Colts as a challenge next week at all

I didn't think the Seahawks played particular well on offense or defense. They won going away thanks to 4 Panther turnovers and I credit the Seahawks for those takeaways but they struggled stopping the Panthers on the ground and Lynch was a non factor. He had one decent run, and a bunch of 1 yard runs. Could be they were a bit out of sync having not played last week but they didn't look like the team we saw the final month of the season.. IMO.

Dang it, i hate making a long reply only to look and see I am in the WRONG area.

let me add the Pats/Ravens game was pretty good. Can't remember the last time I saw a team come back from 14 down twice in a game. It was odd seeing the Patriots abandon the run like that and I don't think that will work against better defensive secondaries but you do what you have to do to advance and they did that so congrats!

I think most teams become inpatient and start throwing if they are down 14 especially in the second half because they are trying to catch up and tie the game. If they were to run they are taking more time off the clock and may not even score a TD. So then you will be in a situation where you ate up a lot of clock and came away from no points. You only run if you are up 14 pts to drain as much clock as possible to make it hard for the other team to catch up with you in pts.

Hmm, I wouldn't say that (and note, super Pats fan here). The Ravens from what I understand while they played very very well, mentally were looking beyond the Pats and got caught up in the "Pats are afraid to play us..." rederick. Based on some stories, Suggs and Dummerville were acting like the Ravens won the Superbowl last week.

So I wouldn't underestimate the Broncos or Colts. I know Bellicheck won't and will keep them focused.

Keep in mind because of some slight of hand (the declaring an inelligble receiver down field, and the Edelman trick play) really won the game. I feel good about the win however the Pats let 4 touchdowns go up, fortunately the answered them and eeked out a win and I do mean eeked out.
